Ban websites

A new feature I would like added to my web browser is the ability to ban a website from my search listings.

Just recently I have been looking something up and I visit a site which imediately does not show me what I clicked on but a full screen message asking me to become a member.

http://www.daniweb.com/
(No link as I do not want to promote them)

This just enrages me, I close the pop-up, and hit back without even reading the site.  Why be an indexable site if your just going to annoy people with prompts like that.  It failed to provide me with what I expected to see and in a sense tried to sell me something.  How would you feel if you switched on your television and before you could watch anything you either had to click no or enter your personal details.

Grrrrrrr.

I know natural selection will allow these sites to die, putting barriers to entry is a sure fire way of killing a site.  Friends reunited did exactly what facebook does now.  But friends reunited tried to charge, fail.

I will be interested to see what happens when news organisations start charging for access (as Rupert Murdoc has said he would), the reporters need paying but I can only see the blog-o-sphere being the new uncensored media.  Which is good and bad at the same time...
